    30 pound per hour, well thats what I aim for. I don't like to tell customers this when pricing a job. I just puts them off.
    I spent 650 altogther, I got a 3600 psi, 15litres a min flow rate. With a turbo nozzle. I also got 30 meters of quality hose with it.
    Petrol, The bigger machines use petrol. If your going for an electric one I would buy a generator too or your customers will need to be in when you do the job. Its not convenient sometimes. I get my water from a near by tap, if there isnt one there when I go to price the job. I have a tank I can fill with water

    Honestly pal doing driveways and pations with it your making things hard for yourself, petrol washer of 3000 is ideal ( mines only 2700 i think ) speed and gets all the ground in dirt. I'd prefer cleaning someone's roof with a less powerful washer tho
